    Why so many Sunday games?

    Can someone please explain to me why the Ath Dept / Mens B-ball team thought it a good idea to have 4 Sunday afternoon games in the Non-Conf (I realize 1 game tips at 5:30 close enough)? I don't know, there really isn't much going on from mid Nov to mid Dec in the sports world on a Sunday is there?

    As an ISU season ticket holder and a Bear fan I feel rather fortunate that I only have 1 conflict out of the 4 Sunday dates (Bears-Vikings Nov 14th, ISU hosts Alabama St @ 1). That may not be the same for others. Good luck getting the casual sports fan in Des Moines to the Well on Nov 21st. Just makes no sense, especially when Alabama St, Texas Southern and Dartmouth are 3 of the 4....

    I dont mind making the drive on a Sunday to catch a game. I'll end up going to all the Sunday games because it doesn't interfere with work. But yeah depends on your situation.

    I don't think we had a lot to say about the Wells game. Probably had to go with when it was available.

    The Sunday games are way better than weeknight games and avoid CFB Saturdays.

    Also during the weekend of graduation, Sunday is the only day Hilton can work.

    Re: Why so many Sunday games?

    I think the Wells game is a good Sunday choice, since the students are gone. That looks like a pretty smart setup to me.

    I prefer Saturday afternoons, but Sundays work for me.

    CB21-does this mean you're making it down more often?


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.

    Re: Why so many Sunday games?

    this is my theory, schools like Ala St and Tx So need to travel
    every week in the early season to support the program. Playing
    Friday/Sunday reduces the # of classes they miss. 12/19 v.
    Dartmouth must be the conflict with graduation.

    This post rules.


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    They had 4 non-conf games on Sunday last year too. Don't know why it's such a big deal. There are a lot of games to fit in at Hilton before the conference games start.

    Would you rather have a game on Sunday afternoon or Tuesday night at 8?
